Hybrid car owners will be happy to know that the hybrid tax is officially out the window starting this coming Tuesday.
Earlier this year Governor McAuliffe signed a law to repeal the state's $64 annual fee on hybrid cars.
The tax was originally supposed to make sure hybrid drivers paid their share of the cost of the state's road repairs, which is funded in part by tax on gasoline.
Now drivers are glad to see the tax go and they say it's a fee that never should've been approved in the first place.
“That's how it should've been,” says Edward Land. “We've never should've had it.”
“We just want to save money and that's the whole reason we bought it.”
There are more than $75,000 hybrid vehicle owners in the Commonwealth who are happy to no longer pay more for their fuel economy vehicles.
